Welcome back to the Club of Epic Radness, aka, the Quirk Weekend Music Mix. Here you’ll find a selection of awesome tracks us QuirkStars are listening to, some are from the Dustbowl era, others are new and use the word swag an awful lot.
Oh, one more thing. This is an extra special edition of the Quirk Weekend Music Mix. Why, you ask. Well, good sir, today marks the first day of our partnership with the much-loved 2Oceansvibe Radio who will be featuring the Quirk Weekend Music Mix on The Premier Show with Seth Rotherham & Bruce Good between 10am and 1pm on Fridays. Be sure to tune in at 2Oceanvibe’s website.
But enough blabbing, let the music play.
Sissy & The Blisters - Let Her Go
Shared by Ltisch Amos
In the days of glitched out beats and auto-tuned vocals, Sissy & The Blisters give us that healthy dose of good ol’ garage rock'n'roll we all know and love. Listen to the noisy, catchy-as-all-hell Let Her Go from these stovepipe wearing lads.
Greenday – Oh Love
Shared by Grant Silverstone
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, there’s no denying Green Day have made their mark on the modern music world. They’ve just released their first single off their upcoming album ¡Uno! (the first in their ¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré! trilogy) and hey, it’s not half bad. With its solid structure, crispy guitar chords and Billie Armstrong’s instantly recognisable vocals, we’re sure this track will get its fair share of radio airtime.
Skunk Anansie – Cry Cry Cry
Shared by Katharina Scholtz
Whoa! Talk about a blast from the past. Nineties angry musicians Skunk Anansie return with this hard rock single off their upcoming release, Black Traffic. Catchy, groovy, fun. Enjoy.
No Doubt – Settle Down
Shared by Jason Warner
Settle down lads. Yes, this music video features the beautiful Gwen Stefani (who doesn’t seem to age just by-the-by), but it also gives us our first taste of new No Doubt in over a decade. Bad ass. Listen to this awesome ska-punk track from the masters of the third wave.
Sigur Rós - Ég anda
Shared by Gareth le Grange
Now it’s time to chill with Icelandic we’re-so-dreamy-we-made-up-our-own-language geniuses Sigur Rós and their latest video from their on-going “Valtari Mystery Film Experiment”. It’s truly beautiful and definitely worth a watch.
We hope you enjoyed this week’s Quirk Weekend Music Mix. Because we’re all about sharing, we’d like to know what you are listening to. So go ahead, make our day.
